    Galaxy Buds Live vs Galaxy Buds and Buds+: In a league of its own

    It was only last year that Samsung released the Galaxy Buds, its new truly wireless earbuds. They had many strengths but a few weaknesses as well. The audio experience was fine for the most part but lacked the X factor. Call quality left a lot to be desired and the battery life could have been better too.

    Samsung addressed some of those issues with the Galaxy Buds+ that were launched in February this year. The speakers were improved, an additional microphone was added and battery life was significantly improved. However, they were missing a crucial feature and Samsung has finally delivered that with the Galaxy Buds Live.

    Galaxy Buds Live vs Galaxy Buds and Buds+

    Samsung's newest earbuds look nothing like the Galaxy Buds/Buds+. This bean-shaped design has been favored because it doesn't protrude from the ear. We quite like that too and it's easy to get a comfortable fit even though it may not seem possible at first. New, larger speakers have been utilized this time for improved audio and a separate bass duct has been added to bring that X factor.

    The three internal mics have been paired with a dedicated Voice Pickup Unit and that should, at least in theory, improve call quality. Lastly, Samsung has also brought Active Noise Cancellation, a feature that was previously missing from its wireless earbuds. All of this puts the Galaxy Buds Live in a league of its own.

    It's evident that the Galaxy Buds Live are what the customers should go for if they're looking for the best audio experience from Samsung's earbuds. The meaningful improvements that Samsung has made really do speak for themselves. However, since the Galaxy Buds/Buds+ will likely be available at a discount now, they also remain viable options for those who just need a solid pair of earbuds for a reasonable price.
